Congratulations to Shannon and Paul for winning the Glee DVDs!
To prepare for the new season of the show (which starts this Tuesday, 9/20, at 8/7c) and the release of the Season 2 DVD & Blu-ray, which are available now, check out some of TV’s classic rivalries, including our favorite sparring pair on Glee!
Glee: Will Schuester & Sue Sylvester
The intense rivalry between the amiable Mr. Schuester and Coach Sylvester is a result of Sue’s desire to bring down the Glee club – and her dislike of Will’s ‘incredibly stupid’ hair and ‘baby’s ass’ chin. Her attempts to disband the Glee club in favor of the Cheerios are constantly thwarted, much to her disgust, leading to her using ever more sneaky methods of bringing down her enemy.
Jump with us to see more of the great TV rivalries.
The Simpsons: Homer Simpson & Ned Flanders
As long-running as the series itself, the feud between Homer and his happy-clapping neighbour is a source of constant amusement to the rest of the Simpson household. Despite brief reunions where the two appear as BFFs, it’s not long before Homer tires of Ned’s hi-de-doodlie’s and returns to his usual greetings of ‘Shut your stupid face, Flanders’!
The Hills: Lauren Conrad & Spencer Pratt
When will celebrities learn?! Another reality TV show, another one of ‘those tapes.’ This time, it was arch-rival Spencer who very publicly spilled the beans on Lauren’s private, er, life; throwing a massive spanner into the works of Lauren and BFF Heidi’s relationship in the process. Follow that up with a few interviews and pretty funny twitter rants, and soon these spoilt adolescents were the talk of the LA scene.
Frasier: Frasier & Niles Crane
The bickering brotherly rivals are constant companions and competitors – fighting over anything from women to wine, to what to do with their father’s old moth-eaten chair which he insists on keeping in Frasier’s apartment. Their competitiveness doesn’t stop them spending every morning together, enjoying a pretentious coffee and criticising their father’s uncultured tastes. But blood is thicker than water and, for all their arguments, the Crane brothers will never be separated!
Friends: Gunther & every man Rachel has ever gone out with
Gunther’s barely-disguised longing for the lovely Rachel Green was obvious to everyone who strayed into the Friends’ hangout – except her. The simmering resentment which he displayed to every other male who dared to make a play for the former waitress, who simply thinks of him as someone “with hair brighter than the sun”. The muttered threats and refusal of service were even more obvious to Rachel’s paramours – as was the sounds of smashing glass from behind the counter whenever she got a date!
